How to install Brutal Doom

Guys I played Brutal Doom again this weekend and I’d like to share this awesome experience with you!

Brootal Doom is a mod for Doom source ports (like gzdoom or zandronum) that raises the bar of crualty and insane fun in this game. It’s like double the doom =)

Apart from cubic tonnes of blood some other features has been added to the game.\

  • Fatalities
  • couple of new weapons
  • alternate fire modes
  • changes pistol to assault rifle (for zombies too)
  • interactions with the environment (destroyable chandeliers, bullet penetration to name a few)
  • Friendly bot marines
  • some taunts, one of which causes demons to attack with far more rage
  • other awesome stuff

I gotta say i’m getting tired of this game too soon. Can’t play it for more than couple of hours in a row. So intense.

So… The game became faster, jumps enabled some alternate ways of beating the same levels. I don’t even know what to say about the game. It’s hilarious and a lot of drive. And it’s good for you!

So I recommend to experience this madness to anyone
